Apple Rolls Out New iCloud Pricing Tiers

The methods to upgrading or changing tier plans are pretty straightforward and generally follows the same steps of going to your device or computer’s Settings, Menu, or opening the program for Windows, heading to the Storage option, and going to the option to purchase more storage or changing your plan. Confirmation of your Apple ID will be needed for this process.

While Microsoft is still offering the cheaper storage option with OneDrive’s 1TB at $6.99 a month and Office 365 included, Apple will be able to compete directly with Google Drive and Dropbox’s offerings, but its free tier at 5GB is looking shrimpish compared to these two storage options.

The prices above are for the U.S, for the pricing for other regions you can check the iCloud storage pricing page.
